Today, the price of champignon in all regions of Ukraine, without exception, continues to grow. The undoubted leader in price increases has become the central region. The growth rate of prices in the south and east of Ukraine slowed down a little. The cost of mushrooms in the West has also finally begun to grow slowly.
On Thursday, December 27, the price of a kilogram of champignon rose on average by another 3.0-4.0 hryvnia compared with yesterday. This morning, the wholesale markets of Kiev, Troyeshchina and Stolichny, sold mushrooms at 20.0-22.0 UAH / kg. Accordingly, the purchase price of champignon from the manufacturer started from 19.0-20.0 hryvnia per kilogram and sometimes reached 21.0-22.0 hryvnia. As expected, the price of champignon for supermarkets rose to 23.0-24.0 hryvnia per kilogram. Such a jump in prices, according to market representatives, is due to the fact that the demand for champignon in the Central region sometimes even exceeds supply.
Good news came to us from the West of Ukraine. The cost of mushroom on Shuvar rose to 17 UAH / kg, which is 0.5-1.0 hryvnia higher than the maximum bid for yesterday. Accordingly, the purchase price of mushrooms from producers increased by 0.5-1.0 hryvnia, reaching 16.0 hryvnia per kilogram. The price of champignon for supermarkets so far remains at the same level and amounts to 18.0 UAH / kg. Nevertheless, manufacturers claim that they are already negotiating the possibility of its further increase. At the same time, the mushroom producers of the region do not console themselves with hopes for a further significant increase in the value of their products. At the moment, the offer of champignon in the region is fully capable of satisfying demand. In addition, in our opinion, this situation is largely due to the abundance of forest mushroom that consumers have left in the summer in the frozen, dry and pickled form.
Today in the south of Ukraine the price has risen in the sector of transactions with representatives of wholesale trade. The average cost of mushroom for wholesalers is 24.0-25.0 UAH / kg, which is 1.5-3 hryvnia more than yesterday. Champignon continues to supply UAH 25.0 / kg to supermarkets. Nevertheless, according to our data, tomorrow we should expect another increase in the price of mushrooms for supermarkets. According to the manufacturers of this region, it will rise to the level of 27.0 hryvnia per kilogram.
In the east of Ukraine, prices for champignon, obviously, reached their maximum. Their growth is gradually stopping. Champignon in the region today is sold at 27.0-28.0 UAH / kg in all areas of implementation. Compared to yesterday, the wholesale mushroom leaves on average 1.0 hryvnia more expensive than yesterday. The price of mushroom for supermarkets increased more significantly + 1.5-3.0 hryvnia per kilogram.
